department of education... and the united states immigration and naturalization service. so, how was your weekend ? what weekend ? bill spent the whole time working, and i did laundry. that sounds romantic. he
proceedings it is about transparently in government and education we. have over 70 law schools and students who have unlimited access to this level. and so in large part, what we are trying to do, or what i have done, is tried to restore faith here in our government institutions by seeing how our court system works. your court system is not perfect, but when people see how our jury system actually works and learn about that, it is one step closer to again, reengaging a citizen in government. and we have to use technology, it is one of those credible tools that while people are disenfranchised in what is going on in sacramento with the lack of transparency, we can have a much more service-oriented government that reengages people. >> so speaking of service orientation, what do you think that the government should do? and where should the government step aside? >> in terms of... >> what do you think is the role of government? it is a very general question. >> so, the role of government is to provide basic services that the private sector would just not provide. i mean, education, i mean, it i
is the educational system. and california used to have an education system that was the envy of the nation. how do you feel we get that back? >> well, it is a tragedy that what used to be one of the top systems in the country is now i think, 47th according to a recent standard that i saw. the senator and folks in his party in sacramento believe that spending more is the answer. that is clearly not the case. i think that los angeles county they spent $9,000 per student in public school system. the average cost of private school $6,000. i support the voucher system that allow the parents to put the children in charter schools, private schools, what we cannot escape is that the school system is broken, again, let's ask the senator, why did the senator support, why did the senator oppose legislation that one of his fellow democrats proposed that would remove dangerous teachers that were convicted of crimes from the classroom and from the public roles? i would like to know the answer to that. >> thank you. mr. leno. >> the 47 out of 50 states figure that miss dillan used is not in educational out comes
. >> you brought up children education as a big issue. do you agree with a recent argument that it's a civil rights issue? . i do believe it's a right for us to be educated. it's not a right to demand education from another person. i can't go to you and say i demand you give me education. that's a -- that's not quite -- a civil right as it is something we need to address as a people and as a nation. it is important. i was listening to a speaker who stated that when the -- the department of education was created we were the number one nation for education in the world. now we are down to like in the 20e. that's staggering. the first thing we need to fix is go back to the constitution which doesn't allow for department of education. now this would then put it back on the states to allow what goes on but for me, i believe that the parents and the teachers should have the most -- the largest say in what goes on with the students and how the money goes. this is how we should address at the lowest level instead of top down type of government controlling regulation we have now. >> i hate
imprisoned and now pursuing my education, i would say there is not one answer. the answer is that there is not an answer. you have brought about by bringing this conversation forum. it is not just law enforcement perspective, it is not just the community-based perspective, it is not just the research perspective, it is a multi- layered approach. first and foremost, we do have to consider meeting youth where they are act. we are talking about perpetrators of violence or what not or system involved or involved in gangs, we have to meet them where they are at. pain and hurt produces more hurt, right? what is fundamental it is addressing back pain -- addressing that pain. not looking at folks in a punitive way and saying, this guy is notorious, we have to lock him up. that person is hurting. he might have been abused, you know. first and foremost, we need to meet that individual's needs. i am pursuing a master's in social work. i have that lens. we need to heal our communities and take those answers upon ourselves. everybody has already -- we sure this in perspective, but defi

underestimate the economic stability and giving a child a good education. if parents are working multiple jobs, it's hard to be a good parent, hard to be there for the parent/teacher conferences. inso far as this alleviates economic stress, i think it's great. >> is this the reason behind this, though? >> this is -- that's why it's a two-fold answer. the second part is, there's something that feels not quite right about having to incentivize good parenting. >> let me challenge that for a second. if at the end of the day -- and you're right, it's all about getting better education for kids, and if although it's horrible -- >> and crass -- >> but if this gets the job done as the ceo, i say do it. >> you may think there's an ick factor. >> if it gets the job done, i'm for it. >> and offering a buffet lunch will get a parent in to care about their child and their child's relationship with that school, then that's what you need to do. whatever's necessary. >> let's do our next topic, football dancing. i know star's a big football fan. >> exactly. >> the jacksonville jaguars are trying to -- >> jack

. >> you have seen the ads. >> vote for 7. >> politicians claim question 7 money will go to education. >> the battle over the expansion of gambling has become the most expensive campaign in maryland history. more than $70 million has been spent. $35 million by the pennsylvania gaming company which operates casinos in west virginia and northern maryland and $35 million by mgm which wants to open a casino at national harbor. >> there's a lot of money in it. the people who stand to gain quite a bit. >> you have to accompany spending. the money. if their shareholders want them to go ahead. >> they certainly have. compare that to the $11 million total spent on the 2010 maryland gov.'s race. >> this is a stunning amount of cash. >> donald kennel thinks the spending may be clouding the debate. >> the question has to do with how much you think about gambling and how much cash is coming from out of state to shapes the way voters will respond? >> at this early voting center what we heard was even though this spending on the campaign has been historic, their focus has been not on the dollars but
by core academic courses, provide work force training, provide an education that prepares students for 4 year universities, keep city college libraries and student support services open, keep technology and instructional support up to date, and offset state budget cuts. i'm here with alyssa messer, an english teacher at city college of san francisco. she's the ppt of aft2121, the faculty union, and a proponent of proposition a. also joining us is starchild, a local activist with the libertarian party of san francisco and a former candidate for the san francisco school board. he's an opponent of the measure. thank you both for taking the time to be with us today. >> thank you. >> alyssa, i'd like to give you the opportunity it share the thoughts of your position. >> so proposition a is a temporary 8-year, $79 parcel tax on properties in san francisco. and that money would go directly to supporting city college of san francisco. city college is the largest work force training center in san francisco. we train students. we also help students learn english as a second language and then o
social grant, which is about a little under $2,000. they could use it for a child's education. they could use it for building a house-- buying a new house. they could use it for upgrading their land, for fertilizers or they could purchase land with it. what we see on the mashambalogu cpa is a group of people who got together to obtain a farm. for this particular farm, it took 396 people pooling their social grant together to purchase this farm. so it's 396 times 15,000 rands. that white farmer made out like a bandit. narrator: today the cpa representatives meet monthly en ofand. brent joined them during one narrator: today the cpa representatives of his recent research trips. mccusker: and how are you moving forward? well, we've got cattles th... we know that if this cattle wi go rightly. and then we're going to sell it and then we'll go forward. and we are producing some other things to plant a garden-- tomatoes and everything-- so we think those things, also, they are going to help us. to plant(aspeaking- tomatoes locanguageh)ng-- translator: for too long, those who could improve living
us form our ideas. and for somebody who's spnt his personal time creating the educational links between our school district and kids and parents, to created a decisional open space in private efforts, we have the right team. today, in concert with mayor mathews and mayor reed with people in business, philanthropy, academia coming together, certainly under the very large umbrella of wanting and wishing and making sure this is the most philanthropic event the world's ever seen. it is appropriately hosted in san francisco. i have often heard when something happens in the city they want it to city. when something happens in san francisco, we want the whole world to know about it. this is a stage. super bowl will be a stage we want to announce to the whole world. in that effort i want to make sure you know we don't leave out what i think is happening with great organizations like sf city and our technology companies, that we want to embrace technology as a way to announce this. so with that i am going to do the first tweet. tweeting. the new hash tag we would like everybody in the ba
to not necessarily covering beats but covering narrative's. rather than just putting one person on education to try to double that entire fire house that comes at him, -- fire hose that comes at them, they can add narratives and subtract them, make sure people are involved. if they are not enrolled in those neighbor -- narratives, something will play out without their impact. >> a follow-up question -- i am not thinking of any city in particular here. with that kind of operation, let's say you have that operation in a city where the daily newspaper in town started to do some very strange things. i imagine that. it was owned by somebody who was very openly talking they were going to support particular causes, particular developments, particular parties. i imagine something like that could happen. does that add to the obligation of citizens, people like you, to do more to fill that void? or can you still -- fill the void -- is that city just out of luck? >> first of all, it is a remarkable symbol of what is happening to journalism. locally, the owners of the "union tribune" just purchased the "north
in addition to helping out the residents in the district because we're trying to educate them, too, as far as what is going on out there in relation to homeless and the mental health. thank you again. [cheering and applauding] (applause) >> thank you, and congratulations. i want to take a moment to acknowledge our representative from mayor lee's office, bevan dufty who helps coordinate many of our mental health programs here in the city. he has a couple honorees who have to leave in a couple moments so i wanted to give him a moment to do the presentations. >> thank you, mr. president, members of the board. if i could ask [speaker not understood] to come up? [cheering and applauding] >> and i'd like to welcome jason's son to come up, if he'd come up and join us. i've never met him and i hear a lot about him. i've never seen jason in a tie, so, this is a pretty exciting day for me. come on, buddy. on behalf of mayor lee, first let me acknowledge supervisor cohen for partnering with the mental health board to create this event and for all of you for participating and i certainly hope this bec
with that in the best way you can. >> when i did the education outreach to federal judges, that's the biggest questions. generally they want to know can you help me do any better than my best clinical judgment? yeah, we can. we can design tests that can predict and they want to know how good can you get? risk assessments are getting better. they're getting a lot better. i look at risk assessments as i have identified the variables that promote risk so that i can develop treatment strategies to reduce those risks. so if you have somebody that scores very high in psychopathy and has all of the other risk factors that would suggest they're is an 80% chance of reoffending in four or five years, you can develop a tiered or strategic relief plan that would help mitigate those risk factors so that that person can be -- levels of risk can be brought down. that's how we think about risk management. i call it typically risk needs assessment, because once you understand the risks, then you can develop ways of mediating them and whether or not that's a brain difference or a picture of a scan or whatever it is, you
of mumps outbreak. apparently it was a face to face educational message views among the orthodox jews. researchers say the outbreak indicates how close repeated contact with an affected person can overwhelm the vaccine. most of those infected have been properly vaccinated. the risk may be higher when the exposure dose is large or intensely transmitted. it may explain why it tends to be less effective. finally, trends in death rates for children who have diabetes. by be struck by over half in 2008 from 2.6 9 million in the '60s. better treatment may be responsible for that drop. the largest decline was seen in kids under the age of 10 but there has been a slight increase in diabetes-related death among teenagers since the late 1980's. that includes types 1 and 2 diabetes. doppler check out the and switch over to the computer. you will see what is happening on the radar screen as far as the scattered showers go in our area. looks like that is locked up as well. a look at the future cast for the region as we head into the next few days. it looks like it may well be a factor in the weathe
believe is clear to anybody with an 8th grade education or above in san francisco that is watching this drama on tv. now the reality of this act... >> given what else is going on today, i doubt that you have much of an audience. >> and we don't, thanks to god that sfgov, tv does do instant replays, thanks for taking some of my time. >> i did want to discuss the concept of due process and i did want to discuss the idea that the constitutional provisions for due process apply. and it is completely appropriate, in fact, it is the ethical thing to do for this ethics commission to send this case over to berkeley's ethics commission because at least they are hearing cases and they don't have bias, built in. it is unfair for city members of the sunshine task force to have on-going conversations with the director of the ethics commission when mr. pilpal is doing that in these rooms, this type of conflict of interest that is built into the con lusion, between the different city agencies is off the hook. since 1999, willie brown issued orders to every one of his documents and commissions not
education and get employment and they can become a productive member of society. and generally the juveniles, again, that we deal with are not any different than the adults we deal with. these are juveniles that often come from homes where supervision of the home is either not there or is very lacking. there's really a significant lack of role model support so there are a lot of problems already. the juveniles that generally come to our attention already bring with themselves. the problem is there's still not enough funding, there is not enough vehicles to provide the services that are necessary, so that is a challenge for us, and unfortunately, often the drug use, drug abuse and those other things do lead to serious crimes when they in fact do become involved in a different part of the process. the other question has to do with back and track. i don't see 1506 impacting negatively on back on track. in fact, the conversations in our office are today around how do we expand the program and back on track is a successful program and we've used a very small population. for those of you who are n
predicting it would be jam san francisco instead of san francisco you knew that folks were educated because of the great leadership at our mta, our county transportation, all of our transit systems and were at the highest level of educating the visitors and others to use public transportation. it will work for all of us and as we build the housing units we identified in hunter's point and treasure island and welcome more people to our great city and we are growing as a result. we are going to have the greatest subway system that can connect to our bart, to our caltrans, to up and down our muni lines. this central subway will be a great success. it will connect to some of the most densely populated and rapidly developing areas, and it will improve access to all of our vibrant communities, and really is investments like this that will foster loyalty among all of our public transit customers while we reduce carbon emissions, make our city cleaner and cleaner. i'm not the only one that thinks this way. you know i'm among many, many friends today in the audience, on stage and i would like to
into medical care, their education, housing, everything, even their finances, and things. so that's a big issue. also, i'm a volunteer at david chiu's office. and when i met david, he told me i could work on a passion project. honestly the biggest thing in the city and this state, you know,ñ?ñ? since the wars have started, we've had mor?ñ?ñ vets coming home and committing suicide thanúçñ?ñ? dying overse. so i've actually joined a3sñ?ñ nonprofit called life for veterans, and that's -- what we want to target is not just helping veterans when they call in, not jump off the ledge, but also giving them outlets and jobs, and housing. so we've made a couple of contacts in napa valley and we have wineries that are going to be supplying housing and job training for these veterans. so it's more than just -- more than just therapy. that's what i feel i can bring to the commission. thank you. >> chair kim: thank you very much. creighton did let us know he would not be here, in case he's here. not seeing him. david adams and mary tramil. >> thank you for having me here today. i started out as a k

of their work actually educating tenants on how to prevent from bringing bed bugs into their units. we also fund president mental health association and they actually lead pier groups and support groups for tenants that have issues with hoarding and cluttering, which is actually something that has been shown to lead to the increase of the likelihood of having bed bugs in your units. so that is something that we are currently doing. our tenant advocates are aware of that. one of the best things we can do of course is prevent bed bugs from coming into the units and we will continue to do that work. we're also hoping to more effectively leverage existing city resources around bed bugs. we currently have 16 healthy housing inspectors that we can more adequately leverage to use around education and also in bed bug abatement work. and we have two health inspectors specifically that work with sro buildings through dph. but i think that that feedback is good. we've gotten it from several groups we've worked with including the apartment association and we'll certainly continue that education work. so, th
to school, got my masters in education and never turned back. everything i've done has been related to education, even in the classroom or running a nonprofit organization. i've been in executive management leadership for over 30 years now. first as executive director of a start-up of nonprofit. that became eventually a $10 million organization. and eventually i ran for school board and i have been on the school board for 8 years and currently i'm the president. during the eight years i've been able to provide leadership, build consensus and make tough decisions. and because of that now we have the best urban school district in california. our test scores have gone up every single year since i've been on the school board. and, in fact, last year was the first time we started closing the achievement gap, which is not the easiest thing to do for any school district. i can't tell you this right now because it's in bargain, but we know our test scores as a district and we're going to be showing when it comes out in a week or so that it's going to blow everybody's socks off in terms of w
you some money. my job is not just to entertain you, fwou educate -- but to educate you, so call me. china. china. the people's republic is more important than we are. that's my conclusion after today's session where the averages rocked a bit higher. the dow gaining 136 points. the nasdaq growing 1.44%. i never want to sell the united states short, ever. hurricane sandy could impact the entire nation as federal money and private insurance starts paying off and construction comes back with a vengeance. auto and home industries are coming back with more confidence than ever. and there is real hope in the air that tomorrow's big employment report might show some nice gains. the jobs report were a tad better than expects. that said, the upward move we saw in many stocks today, particularly in the industrials cannot be traced to anything happening here. no, not at all. these gains were all about one piece of data out of china. and not anything else you heard about why the stocks moved is wrong. we got the boost of stocks from fedex and the freight transporter into a mining and equipment

educational levels in the state on average. it tends to be the most democratic region. if you go down to and tidewater, roads, that is a heavy defense industry area. it is both white-collar and blue-collar, also has a large african-american population. and it also has a relatively low nativity rate, that is people not necessarily born in virginia, due to the influence of the navy. the navy brings lots of people in from across the nation and across the world. the richmond area is an urban area, but it's probably the most conservative urban region in this area and maybe one of the most conservative in the country. of course, is a traditional area, particularly because of the west side of richmond, the city of richmond, the east side is heavily african-american and the west side is predominately white and his conservative with a high nativity rate. some of the surrounding counties have become more diverse over the years, but by and large it is also a conservative suburban ex-urban area. those are three. you may include far south virginia and a world unto itself. it used to be substantial
